Exige Scura floormats are here!

I saw these in a post on the Scura, and thought they were the coolest thing ever, but sadly did not see them in the parts manual. As usual, my reading skills were faulty. They are not listed for the Scura, but they are for the 2010 Elise Club Racer.

floormats:
A120U4055F
A120U4056F

underpads:
A120V4029F
A120V4030F

something like 320 bucks all in, I don't have the receipt in front of me
I think you could skip the dealer price on the underpads, they appear to be pretty generic thin foam.

I'll get pics when I get them installed

Need to lift the console, though not remove. Also remove the 'scrivet' from the harness cover/divider. PAnel is rigid so it cannot get past the scrivet or the bolt for the steering rack, you need to kind of slide it in from the back.

Needs some fettling

probably designed for non carpet cars, so sanded a bit off the outer edge

holes for holddowns are not quite perfect, so half round file to remove some material from the outboard edge of the outboard hole.

Whenever you punch holes in a panel, it bends upward. The machine restrains it, but it still happens, had to carefully reverse bend the panel downward front to rear as it would stay up about a half inch in the front

I am choosing not to remove the backing from the foam, it is designed to adhere to the plain floor with no sound deadening and no velcro. If it causes me trouble I will stick it down.

I have some black nylon panel edging kicking around if they rattle I will glue that to the edge, probably requiring a little more material removal from the edge

haven't put the drivers side in yet, I am going to put a square of paint protection film on the un perforated square, since I noticed in the pics from our forum mate that the anodize wears off under the heels. See how long the film lasts. I don't think you will notice the wear as much on the perf sections



I think these are cool as all get out, and they won't rumple the way the carpet does

If they get shabby you can just sand them back to an even texture

Nice looking.

Did you happen to measure the thickness of the aluminum? Might be a good project for a cnc router.

about .078, 2mm

I have a pretty fast CNC, and buying it was the better option.....

So the driver side is a little more complicated

They don't bend, so you can't get the panel past the pedals.

You have to pull the aluminum separator up, removing all four scrivets and pulling it up

Console also has to get pulled up, but not removed. remove the one screw at the bottom of the 'cup holder' and loosen the two that hold the trim piece at the rear of the console so it is free to slide up a bit.

Now you can slide the mat in under the pedals without hitting the inside of the chassis.

It appears they are designed for carpet free cars, so I took a random orbit sander to the outside edge up to the end of where the carpet is[about 12 slots past the beginning of the heel patch] and removed .06-0.08" off of the edge of the panel. The hold down holes appear to be in a better position than on the passenger side.

YOu can see how high I had to get the console to get the drivers side in, don't have to take the shift knob off

second pic shows a little piece of black nylon panel edging I put in to make sure it doesn't rattle. You can also see that I put a square of paint protection film on the heel pad area to keep it from wearing too quickly,. Dunno if it will work
